During 2023, AER and Ulrika Bodén are working together on a new repertoire with both songs and tunes. The result will be heard on a joint record with a planned release 2024.
With her expressive way of singing and a voice that is both ethereal and powerful Ulrika Bodén is regarded as one of Sweden’s most foremost folk singers.
Ulrikas latest album Te Berga Blå – To the Blue Mountains, has been highly praised, a tribute to the pastoral music and its tradition bearers – the women. The luxurious festival- and concert line-up to this repertoire is the favorite musicians of the trio Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall, also featuring on the album.
With their dazzling ensemble playing and imaginative arrangements Ahlberg, Ek & Roswall have established themselves as one of the most exciting acts on the folk music scene. Their music is characterized by both pop and baroque influences, a great tonal range and an absolutely irresistible swing.
